2015-11-14

(TEXT ONLY) Pope Francis expressed his "pain” over the terrorist attacks in France during a telephone interview with the Italian television network TV2000. The Pope said "there is no religious or human justification for it.” Further, he added that it is part of a piecemeal Third World War.

Further, he also sent a telegram to the Archbishop of Paris, Andre Vingt-Trois describing his closeness with the French people. Pope Francis’ Saturday meeting with the president of Iran was suspended because of the attack, in which at least 120 people were killed.

Full transcript of the Pope’s interview with TV2000

Your Holiness, what were your thoughts and feelings about the killing of Paris?


"I am moved and I am saddened. I do not understand, these things hard to understand, done by human beings. For them I am moved, pained, and I pray. I am very close to the French people, so dear, I am very close to the families of the victims and I pray for all of them.”

You've spoken several times of World War III in parts...


"This is a piece of it. There is no justification for these things.”

Above all there can be no religious justification?

"There is no religious or human justification for it. This is not human. For that reason, I’m close with all of France, I love them very much.”
